    Hi Paul... What do you mean by "road bike" exactly? I ride a hybrid - Specialized CrossTrail. Does that work?? It's not super-fast, but I bet I keep up to the group as I ride it on the pathways daily throughout the year and take spinning class 2X week.

      Ok great, thanks Paul. Some people mean racing bike when they say "road bike".

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
